A 2 Bedroom penthouse apartment with 2 bathrooms, lounge and fully equipped kitchen. This apartment offers it's own private roof top sun terrace, along with a separate balcony overlooking the communal pool. The apartment is situated in a small village, Cabanas; about 4km from Tavira in the Eastern Algarve, which is about 30 min drive from Faro airport. Although car hire is not essential, we would strongly recommend it in order to explore the surrounding area, with the Spanish border being only a 30 min drive away. The apartment is on a shared complex with access to a communal pool and a separate children’s pool. From here the lovely sandy beach at Cabanas is a 15 min walk. Here you will find some delightful bars and restaurants and a local supermarket.

We are an English Family with 2 young boys. Will love to visit Portugal and our Apartment as much as we can for a total switch off. We live by the beach in the UK so spend a lot of time on the beach, but I have to say, taking the boat to the beach in Portugal is a highlight for the kids. The pool is great to relax after a hard day on the beach. We also like to chill out in the evenings on the roof terrace and watch the sun set with a glass of wine. With two small children, we try and alternate with food by either staying in or visiting one of the great local restaurants.
Why Caroline chose Conceição
We look the calm relax atmosphere of Cabanas and love the different restaurants that are around.

Fantastic apartment in a great location
The apartment was spotlesly clean, spacious, fantastic roof terrace with great views as well as overlooking the pool. The pool itself was well maintained, clean with plenty of sun shades and loungers. Plenty of parking available if you have a car, or just a short walk away from the local train station or bus stops. Great communication with the property owner and many thanks to Linda and David who were waiting with keys and useful information on our arrival. I would have no hesitation in booking this apartment again.
Very nice apartment
A very nice spacious apartment with a terrific roof terrace with 2 sun loungers and lounge furniture, and 2 balconies. We were met by Jeff who helpfully showed us in and explained some of the local facilities. There are a few very good restaurants within short walking distance but the main group of restaurants and bars was about a mile away by the beach so we were glad we had a car. The roof terrace would benefit enormously from an umbrella as it is obviously exposed. The pool area was generally uncrowded other than a few days during the school holiday period.
Tavira is about 10 minutes away and is a lovely town with numerous cafes and restaurants. It is much more traditional and less commercialised than many of the Western Algarve resorts but still a good size town. Jeff advised us where to park free and access the town easily.
Thanks for the review. We can not have an umbrella unfortunately due to the wind, we have had many take off. We have put up a sail to provide shade now.
perfect apartment in lovely Cabanas
This is our second time staying in this lovely apartment in Cabanas. Apartment is spotless and well equipped. Perfectly situated with a supermarket a couple of minutes walk away and a pleasant stroll down to the beach and restaurants. Train station also a couple of minutes walk way where you can easily explore nearby towns. Roof top sun terrace is amazing with comfy sofa and sun loungers. Pool area also very clean and nice and quiet. Hope to be back again next year!
Thank you so much and look forward to welcoming you back next year.
Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location
This was our second visit, having loved it so much last year, just had to come back. The apartment is faultless. It has everything you need, and is absolutely spotless. The air-con works perfectly and the beds are comfy. The balcony from the lounge is a great place to have a leisurely breakfast in the sun and the roof terrace is bliss anytime. We had a routine where we'd have a leisurely breakfast, quick walk to the local supermarket (3 min walk) for fresh bread. Back to make sandwiches then walk to beach (10-15 minutes easy walk). Late afternoon back to apartment, then onto roof terrace for a couple of hours with a bottle or two then back to the town for evening meal.
Everything about Cabanas, the beach, this apartment are perfect 'ingredients' for a relaxing, chill-out holiday. Will definitely be back.
Finally, would recommend the pick up service from Jeff & Wendy. Jeff, was there to pick us up, and arrived to take us back bang on time. Really nice, friendly guy. Leave the driving in the UK and enjoy the break.
Thanks again Caroline.
The apartment corresponded to the expectations.
Very well equipped, large and everything went right.
I hope to repeat next year
Thank you for the review and look forward to seeing you next year.
great week in the sun
Apartment was exactly as pictures shown. Well maintained and clean with everything you could need for a holiday. We especially loved the private roof terrace. Pool area clean with plenty of sun beds and was never too busy. Supermarket and a couple of restaurants within a 5 minute walk and a pleasant 15/20 minute walk to the seafront where there are numerous restaurants, bars, etc. Communication with Caroline very straightforward and helpful and a special mention to Jeff who picked us up from the train station and took us straight to the apartment - very much appreciated!
I am glad that you had a lovely break and the weather was great.
thank you for your feedback
If you take 15 minute walk from the apartment it will bring you to the pretty waterfront of Cabanas. From here you will be able to take a 2 minute boat ride over to beautiful Cabanas beach, which has 3km of amazing white sand. Cabanas beach is a beautiful naturally formed island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa. Boats cost 1 Euro return per person and run throughout the day. The beach has it's own changing facilities, parasols, sun beds and cafe bar.
The nearest airport to Cabanas is Faro and it is approximately a 35 minute drive; taxis and car hire are available from the airport and a local rail service a 5 minute walk from the apartment, the apartment is ideally placed for your holiday location, with no aircraft fly-overs. A half hour drive will take you across the Spanish border. Car hire is not essential if you just want a relaxing holiday, but recommended if you wish to explore the Algarve more fully or venture into Spain.
The motorway IP1/A22 now runs the length of the Algarve making the Western Algarve very convenient to explore. The historic and beautiful town of Tavira is 10 minutes away by car and is a most to visit.
Cabanas has some lovely restaurants which are very small and friendly serving fresh local food. There are a number of small supermarkets near the apartment but in Tavira there is a large super market and fish and veg market.
